Perhaps, but in BRG with wood steering wheel and shift knob from Nardi and Panasport (Minilite replica) wheels it cuts a dashing enough figure. I'd drive an Elise - the purest driving machine that's legal on American roads - except that I'm too tall to exit one with any grace.
But if I had to drive a modern with more than two seats, I'd move to Europe and make it a CitroÃ«n C6. May not be a driver's tool, but at least unlike this worthless garbage coming out of Germany, Japan, and America it has some hints of style.
And Bill, surely you're not so daft as to compare some FWD yank-tank flexy-flyer econobox with a car in the traditional sports car idiom (front engine, RWD, topless) with outstanding driver feedback and the best of purist sports car technology (double wishbone suspension, high revving twincam four, etc.).
